First performances at the festival

For lovers of the music of today, there will be four world premieres at the Festival this year! Bastien David takes a new look at the concerto genre, with two solo cellists, in L’Ombre d’un doute Bruno Mantovani highlights Colin Currie’s percussion brilliance, in Allegro barbaro and Yan Maresz juxtaposes a modern violin and a Baroque orchestra, in Tendances. Finally, don’t miss Michel Petrossian and Aram Hovhannisyan’s duo premiere – with Seven, the Angels of Sinjar the composers have concocted a colorful ballet, choreographed by Michel Hallet Eghayan.

The music of this ballet can be found on CD, on the Printemps des Arts label, and on all music streaming and download platforms.
